God is the issue Print
Sunday, 12 April 2009

Moral posturing is part and parcel of temptation. It does not directly invite us to do evil - no, that would be far too blatant. It pretends to show us a better way, where we finally abandon our illusions and throw ourselves into the work of actually making the world a better place. It claims, moreover, to speak for true realism: What's real is what's there right in front of us - power and bread. By comparison, the things of God fade into unreality, into a secondary world that no one really needs.

God is the issue: Is he real, reality itself, or isn't he?


Jesus of Nazareth
